SUPC is committed to embedding sustainable and responsibly considered procurement across all aspects of the procurement process.

This document provides a set of questions that can be used at framework or call off level to investigate potential suppliers’ commitments and plans to manage their organisations and supply chains by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). This document also relates to the overall social value TOMs.

The SDG Tender and Call off questions have sector-wide commitment and input from SUPC, LUPC, NEUPC, and NWUPC. This standard set of questions will allow suppliers to report on: what they have achieved so far, what they are committing to do in the future and how these questions can help them to make positive changes to their organisations and demand better through their supply chains. The document includes some guidance as to which stage of the process they are best suited and if they are category-specific.
